J/24 Italy Report

J/24 sailing Italy (Anzio Nettuno, Italy)- Over the weekend, the 42nd Winter Championship of Anzio and Nettuno had twenty-one J/24 crews take to the water.  It was a tight battle between the protagonists of the last edition, LA SUPERBA skippered by Ignazio Bonanno BLACK LEATHER sailed Paul Cecamore and skippered by the 2014 Soling World Champion- the Hungarian Farkas Litkey.

"It’s been a good start for the regatta,” commented SUPERBA’s skipper Bonanno.  “In the opening race, won by Farkas Litkey and Paul Cecamore, we finished in second place because of a slight collision with the J/24 skippered by Federico Miccio (Ita 216 Jumpin'jack Flash).  “In the second race, however, we won with a good gap from the second place boat, Black Leather.  For this regatta, the J/24 Fleet was a little less numerous than recent years, but the competition was always on a good level."

The provisional rankings has LA SUPERBA in first, followed by BLACK LEATHER in second, DAIQUIRI in third (with skipper Fabrizio Sabatini), AMERICAN PASSAGE in fourth (with Paul Rinaldi as skipper/ owner), and GREEN RAY in fifth (with Carmelo Savastano as skipper).   For more Italian J/24 sailing information
